How are Eyelid Revision Surgeries Performed?

Eyelid surgeries are particularly useful for cosmetic and functional issues that are affecting the eye. Even though eyelid surgeries have never been safer or more effective, it is always possible for complications to arise. Sometimes the patient is simply not satisfied with the outcome. In these cases, eyelid revision surgery is the answer.

As far as upper eyelid surgery is concerned, a fold that is set too high is an example of a result that can be undesired. In this case, our expert in upper eyelid revision in Beverly Hills will first evaluate the amount of skin that you have left on your eyelid. If excess skin is present, then the surgeon will remove it from the eyelid and reset the fold at a lower point. If no excess skin is present, then the first step will be to release the fold. The surgeon will then have to create a buffer between the scarred skin and untouched skin before resetting the fold at a lower point.

With Asian eyelid surgery, the patient lacks a fold in their eyelid and desires to have a natural-looking fold placed there. This condition affects about fifty percent of the Asian population and is also known as a monolid. Both eyelids are treated individually during this surgery. A fold that has been placed too low is another example of a result that would require revision. In this procedure, our expert in Asian eyelid revision in Beverly Hills simply needs to place a new fold at a higher point. The new fold will then be placed in such a way that the old fold will be completely covered up.
